About Me


To start a career freelance writing and advance my career as a teacher. Learn as many skills as I can while abroad and save up enough money to visit my family and my cats back in the states.


Living to travel at the moment. Slowly traveling around the world and making money while doing it!

I'm passionate about finding a way to see it all.


Do it all! Don't waste any time ! You can do anything you want to do , be anything you want to be.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


I have surfed quite a few times in different areas of the world! I've hosted once and organized a meetup one time as well ! I will host when my living situation is more ideal.


I had my first CS surfing experience in Atlanta Georgia and it was everything I hoped it would be. I had a wonderful host who really shared the spirit of CS with me and gave me the experience that I think all surfers should have. I learned new things, tried new foods, and met new and interesting people that were very different from myself and this is what I think CS is all about!! So far, I have only had great experiences with interesting people!

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Became an actual nomad.

Teach, Learn, Share

I can't think of what I can teach you. Sometimes people just don't know what they are teaching others in their interactions. I guess we will figure it out when the time comes.

I want to learn everything!

What I Can Share with Hosts

A passion for travel. Inspiration. Positive vibes. Basic Chinese.
